The medical term for a wet dream is ‘nocturnal emission’ and this occurs when a person orgasms involuntarily while in their sleep (imagine this!). Although it is refered to as a sleep orgasm, it is not always tied to an erotic dream or to a sexual experience like masturbation, they are completely involuntary.  

 

Many young men talk of these experiences often, especially while in high school as this is when they are at the peak of puberty. Do not worry my dear, you are only growing and experiencing a part of it in your body.

Is it normal to have them very often? 

As a teenager going through puberty, yes. As an adult, not so much. Don’t worry, it’s not actually abnormal. As we age, our hormone levels decrease, which affects the frequency of wet dreams. But that doesn’t mean you won’t have one as an adult.
